Mary: :ROFL: Awesome dream! Congrats on passing the milestone today! Hope your m/s goes away soon...you're totally making me dread what I probably have in store soon lol
Katie: Brekke used to sleep with that many "friends" in her bed too but she has finally gotten to her one dog that she also totes everywhere (it's less annoying than the blanket though). I'm jealous Evan's sleepy blanket doesn't leave the house! That'd be nice. Rory's newborn phase sounds very similar to Brekke's. Just unsettled most of the time. It makes for a long first 4-6 months.
Virginia: being due around your anniversary is fun. Our anniversary is right between our kids birthdays (although it messed up doing much both years they were born because I either had a newborn or was about to explode LOL)
Pretty mellow Sunday around here...DH went on a bike ride so the kids and I went to the park, then stopped at the grocery store on the way home to get sandwich stuff for lunch. My new favorite is making sandwiches on french bread & the grocery store by my house makes the softest french bread (AND they have wheat!). Anyway, DH has to leave town for a few days AGAIN so I have to iron some clothes for him while kids nap...lucky me!
Katie - Your Rory sounds exactly like my Sean. He was just PO'ed until he could move. He was totally disgruntled for the first 6 months until he could crawl. Then it got a little better, but not entirely better until 10m when he started walking. Calvin, on the other hand... He was a little love bug... He would just lay with you and cuddle day long, lots of smiles, rarely cried, soooo pleasant. I'm anxious to see how baby #3 is, hahah. (by anxious, I mean scared, lol)
Ashley - Did you POAS anymore? I hope that line is getting darker!
THIS! I am crossing my fingers for a cuddly baby...neither of mine have been at all (although they do a bit more now they are older). Yes I've had a small supply left of ICs so I've been POAS 2x a day and it's slowly getitng darker. I have one more FRER left so I thought I'd do that tomorrow just to compare from a few days ago. If I get a sec, I'll post a pic ;)

OPK is still super light. For the past 3 days my ovaries have felt like they usually do 2-3 days before O. Hmm... I hope they aren't working on a bunch of eggs. I'd like just one.
ETA: If anyone does Huggies Rewards, here's a code I don't want: CHMSZ-GMRSN-CDTNR
Virginia: aw, come on...you could get 2 more in one shot! ;) JK I would freak if I found out I was having twins. My close friend has twins that are 3 1/2 and they are a HANDFUL. I like your idea about saying the kids kept you up the night before.
Here is my progression pic for my FRER's. If I would have marked what days I did the ICs it would be a much more fun picture since I have like 10 of them but they are all mixed up so you just get this:

Congrats Mary and Ashley for your pregnancies! :yahoo:
Now I have baby fever...hehehe...but it wont happen for me..:)
Long time I don't post (again) hehehe! I'm doing pretty good. I'm living now in Tampa, Fl. Got an apartment here. The only thing that sucks is that DH still working far in Buffalo, NY and I'm here with the kids alone. He comes every two weeks or sometimes once a month (it depends). He is looking for a job here so he can move with us again.
Darian is doing good. He started at kindergarden he is having a little problem with the language, he speaks english already but he is confused with the letters and sounds in english (he mixed how they sound in english and spanish) so we are trying to get him started on how to read in english first.
Brian and Kaylie are good now. They had a rough week last week they got a virus (hand, foot and mouth disease) and Brian got the worst of it. He had one daya fever of 105. And some days Brian is having involuntary movements while he is sleeping and yesterday had it bad cause it wake him up. I don't know if it is a side effect from an intramuscular antibiotic he got from last week at the doctor. Today they all have an appointment with another pediatriacian, I just hope is nothing bad.
In the other hand I can't believe they will turn two this wednesday. My God the time has fly so quickly. It like yesterday that I had them.
Have a good day everyone!
Grenet - so good to hear from you! Sorry the twins were sick, but I'm glad they're getting better. I cannot believe how old everyone is getting! Time does fly.
Mary - hope you were able to survive the game yesterday. Virginia had a great idea!
Virginia - sorry about the chunk of tissue, hopefully that was the end of that.
Ash - great pics!! Xander has a ton of cuddlies in his bed, but he definitely has his favorites. He'll occasionally bring one to the couch, but none of them ever leave the house. He's tried, but I'm a hardass about it. lol. Recently he got obsessed with a fleece throw blanket that I keep in the living room, only if he brings it into bed with him he wakes up screaming an hour later all soaked in sweat because it makes him so hot! haha
Katie - so you think you'll last almost an entire year when you already have baby fever? lol. Though I guess I did, I think I was ready for well over a year before we TTC.
AFM - I have to take my older dog Brodie to the vet this afternoon. He's been having issues with his back leg for a few weeks now where he'd get off the couch and limp for a few steps before he walked normally. We weren't sure if his leg was falling asleep or what... Well Saturday he completely threw it out while chasing a frisbee and he hasn't used it since. )c: He's not in any pain, though, so it's not a pulled muscle. From what research I did, it sounds like a ligament problem that is common with bichons... I sure hope not, though, because it almost always requires surgery!!! My poor pup! I am praying the vet tells us it's no big deal, but my gut tells me that won't be the case.
Virginia - Good luck with getting pregnant, hope your fertility kicks into gear.
Ashley - Great looking lines. Twin 3.5 year olds would be crazy, Natalie is a handful alone.
Greda - Hi, glad to hear everyone is doing well, hope your DH can find some work in Florida so you can be together.
Did lots on the weekend. Dana had a hockey tournament, the team didn't do so well though they didn't get slaughtered in any of the games so it was still a good experiance.
We went out and got Natalie some hockey skates and a helmet, she's excited about it. We'll try to get out to as many open skates as we can, lessons are a bit inconvenient since the city handed that over to an independent school.
Went to MIL's house for two of DH's nephews birthdays. As usual tha woman ticked me off, I didn't say anything to keep the peace.
Her bathroom which she claimed she scrubbed were still dirty, not as bad as before, but still bad.
She still hasn't spayed/nutered any of her animals the dog is female and 6 month the cat male and 1 year. The cat of course got out to spread his seed so they haven't seen him in over 24 hours. Her excuse for not fixing the animals was she didn't have the money, but she managed to buy gifts for most of the kids there probably totaling to about $300.
Well the peace was kept while I was there though apparently after we left there was trouble. I talked to DH's niece a bit (the one that lived with us) just to see how she was doing, well apparently my MIL yelled at our niece because I talked to her for a bit. UGH! MIL and I don't see eye to eye but she shouldn't be punishing a 16 year old for talking to me.
Anyway sorry about the rant, I swear every time we see her I just get upset. She's so irresponsible its unbelieveable.
The party was good, the kids enjoyed themselves so overall success.
